DAUGHERTY Angela Michalik

age 67, longtime resident of Naples, Fla., and formerly of Detroit, Mich., died at the Avow Hospice facility in Naples on Monday, March 26, 2012, following an extended illness.  She was born Ruth A. Daugherty on Oct. 27, 1944, in Sayre, a daughter of the late G.Edward and Clarice A. (Cook) Daugherty. She was a 1962 graduate of Northeast Bradford High School, and attended business school thereafter. Despite her small town beginnings, she embarked on adventures many girls her age only dreamed of. Starting a new life in New York City as Angela, she flourished in the city that never sleeps. She landed an impressive job at CBS television, and frequented places like Club 21 and The Bunny Club. Her first marriage took her to Detroit, where she remained for many years. She began a long career with the then Mohawk and Republic Airlines, in an era when there were hiring criteria for a stewardess, based on physical characteristics. She retired from international trips with Northwest Airlines after nearly 30 years of service. Angela didn't need hobbies, as she was compelled to complete nearly every task with finite detail. Months of planning went into many projects, and the greatest reward was a smile from the recipient for all of her efforts, and the acknowledgement that there was no one else like her. Angela lived in Naples for more than 15 years, with frequent trips to Pennsylvania. The past decade Angela was frought with health issues, may she now be at peace.  She is survived by her siblings, Sandra Erickson of Aiken, S.C., Janet VanDerMark of Macedonia, Mary McPherson of Athens, Bruce (Peggy) Daugherty of North Orwell,, Cindi (Dick) Roper-Penney of Naples, Fla., and Jack (Patti) Daugherty of Aliquippa; her lifelong friend Pam (Peter) McAteer of Aiken, S.C.; and a large extended family. Angela was preceded in death by a sister, Lois Ann.  Prayers of committal will be held privately by the family at the Orwell Valley Cemetery.

Gazel MANCHESTER of Orwell Killed in Automobile Crash
Miss Gazel Manchester, aged 51 and daughter of Mr. And Mrs. George Manchester of Orwell, was instantly killed yesterday morning at about 8:30 o’clock when the car she was driving to her work at the Citizens National Bank here went out of control on an icy section of Orwell Hill and crashed into a tree.  The force of the impact caved the right side of the machine into the left side where Miss Manchester was seated as the vehicle wrapped itself around the tree.  It was demolished.   Miss Manchester, who was alone, sustained a fractured neck, fractures of both legs and internal injuries.  She was pronounced dead at the scene by Dr. Henry Brown of LeRaysville.  Mrs. Robert Kennedy of Orwell heard the crash and was the first at the scene.  She shut off the ignition, as the motor was still running.  Rex Russell, also of Orwell, then arrived and notified the State Police here who in turn summoned the Sayre State Police as the tragedy occurred within the Sayre station’s jurisdiction.  Miss Manchester was trapped in the car and the seats had to be removed before her body could be released.  The Wysox ambulance was called and removed the remains to Sutfin Funeral Chapel at Nichols.  Miss Manchester was born at North Loup, Neb., on June 24, 1905.  She graduated from Towanda High School in 1924 and for a time was employed in the general store at Orwell.  Later she worked here for the Towanda Wholesale Co.  In 1939 she joined the staff of the Farmers National Bank at Rome, showing such an aptitude for the work that she became teller and then assistant cashier.  Ten years ago she came to the Citizens National Bank of Towanda and at the time of her death was a teller, was in charge of the Savings Account Dept. and the Christmas Club.  Scores of Towanda and vicinity residents came to know her at the Citizens Bank and were attracted by her courtesy, her efficiency and her general thoughtfulness and pleasant manner.  She made many friends in Towanda and her tragic death yesterday morning caused deep shock and profound sorrow.   She was a member of Orwell Grange No. 1561.  Surviving in addition to her parents, George and Lulu Manchester, is a brother, Clarence, of Dattesburg, S.C.  The body is at the Sutfin Funeral Chapel in Nichols where it will be until the day of the funeral.  Friends may call there this evening and Wednesday evening from 7 to 9 o’clock.  (Orwell Cemetery)  The Daily Review – 5 Feb 1957
